Global challenges today need to be addressed by a diversity of stakeholders, and anyone can and should be able to collaborate. Young people around the world are doing amazing things already, transforming their realities for the better. With the right support and empowerment (and breaking limiting structures), every young person can become a global shaker. Population under 30 represent half of the world's population.

The only winner during our discussions and interactions will be YOUth.
